Bear will be speaking live on the Today programme on Thursday 22nd March, offering a personal reflection from a faith perspective.
Bear said: “Thought for the Day is a national institution and I’m flattered to have the opportunity to share my thoughts and raise awareness of Sport Relief. The great British public can do their bit for Sport Relief too. I will be running the Sport Relief Mile in Manchester on Sunday 25th March and with Mile events happening across the UK everyone can take part. There is still time to sign up, go to sportrelief.com to find out more.”
Bear will be joining a long list of inspiring people who have contributed to BBC Radio 4’s renowned Thought for the Day since its launch in 1970. Previous contributors include: Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Baron Indarjit Singh and Professor Mona Siddiqui.
